I want to try these in a Bugera T50 Infinium. But,I can't seem to find any remarks on the web for this application.
My T50 currently has a pair of the Bugera el34 tubes and I feel it compresses and begins to overdrive a little too soon. In the lead channel it reminds me the Hot Rod Deville "fizz."
I'm looking for more headroom and dimension in my tone. I play mostly R&B styles and a touch of jazz fusion.
Any advice is appreciated.

I would suggest either this tube or the E34L for maximum headroom. This should help a bit with your early breakup. Additionally, with the tubes I mentioned you can always request the highest PC/TC numbers for least breakup.
From what I've been discovering online, the answer to this largely lies with the preamp section, namely the four (4) 12AX7s. I'm changing these to, inline from the guitar input jack (call it V1) all the way over: V1 = 12AY7, V2 = 12AX7, V3 = 12AX7, V4 = 5157. Hopefully by this coming Friday 07/10, I'll have a smoother, more gradual gain, which it's hoped, translates to a more singing, far less crosscut crunch tone in the overdrive channel.
I have KT77 apex matched. If I give the ID # can I get these 6CA7's with similar ratings so I can swap the two and not have to re-bias my amp?

You can provide the PC/TC numbers and it's possible we could find similar ratings. There is the chance the number scale will differ with different tube types and biasing may still be needed.
